Try a different Dual Link DVI-D cable. Maybe its not plugged in snug?
I've only had something similar happen to me when I was using a bad HDMI cable for one of my monitors.

I have tried 2 DVI-D cables, I have a new cable running from the power brick to the wall and I will see if it's a case of another device causing interference.

I am at a loss as to what causes it, its so random and happens with in 1 hour of being powered on or so then never happens again while the monitor is powered up.

I am beginning to think these monitors are simply drop-shipped from the factory (they do the "pixel checks" in any case) so all the replies about checking the monitor, or packing it safely are all to make us feel better!

Oh, that sounds bad.

For how long are you waiting for an answer? I waited about one day for each answer.

Do you have a different source you can try to eliminate that as the source of the banding?

Originally none were drop shipped as they had special packaging.  With the current issues it appears some are having I think it is coming down to reseller laziness rather than drop shipping.  If your monitor comes in anything (extra box, bubble wrapped, etc.) then it is definitely not a drop ship monitor.  Witech will not individually wrap or box a monitor for resale.  As far as manufacturer pixel tests, these are not done in the factory (Witech), these are done before Witech buys them (hence why they already know the panel is A+, A, A- etc.)  The only check from Witech is power up and picture.  I am told Witech does not pixel check out the door.

I think the same. I suggest you get a refund instead.

I sent my email last Friday (I'm in CA). Right now it's 1am Tuesday in Korea, no reply yet. Maybe they need to show the photos to the engineers?

They will both do fine at that resolution. Extra vram is always nice for higher resolutions, but I hardly think it will be a concern. Go with either!

Hm, thats too long. :/


I dont think, they have their own engineers, maybe some guys with an IT-qualifikation for checking the monitors. Maybe they´ll send them to wiltech, but then you should have get an message like this:

We send your request and pictures to wiltech, they´ll contact us soon... or sth like that.

Thats what I would do, if im not able to solve the problem on my own.

But let the buyer wait for such a long time is not the best way to solve such a problem. thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

(although they know, that people from all over the world are talking about that monitors and yes as well they are talking about the sellers and their support.)


I dont know whats the standard time, a korean support team has to answer the questions. I had an experience with a German support... I couldnt believe, that they needed 1,5 weeks to answer my request....mad.gif but in the end, i got what i wanted.

I hope everything will get right for you, too smile.gif

Thanks for that insight, and for all your work on the original write-up!

That is why I am suspecting they drop-ship (at least single unit purchases) now because mine came with a factory seal in a factory box with no additional packing as if it were shipping in-country to a South Korean customer. Others are reporting the same even though they made special requests (check before you ship, extra packing, bubble-wrap, etc.) I even went so far as to offer extra payment for additional packing, no reply to that!
